Claire Styryzuk – Quote just wanted to say a huge thank you to those families who came and helped make today a success at Bigberry, especially those who came and helped prepare the event in the last few days before the event. A huge amount of personal time is put into these events and we really do need the support of Pony Club members and parents. Volunteers and helpers are a vital part of the team in running such events, without them they simply won’t run. Thanks again to those who have helped, and hopefully will see a few more new faces helping next year, and at any other events we host.

NEW – Exciting news our branch has been selected to pilot the THE YOUNG EQUESTRIAN CLUB within our Branch. Young Equestrians is a scheme created by Hoof, The British Equestrian Federation legacy programme, in collaboration with the Pony Club aimed at 13-18 year olds. Thanks to Sport Englands funding we are given virtual tools to help establish the club and marketing materials.It provides an extra social element for the teenagers to spend more time with their friends, developing life skills, generally having fun and hopefully trying new activities. It will also give older members a chance to be more involved and an opportunity to voice their ideas. Then we will try to arrange appropriate events in the holidays depending on what the Young Equestrians want.The only requirement is that the teenagers register (no fee) and each week record on the online portal their riding sessions (at home, rallies, shows etc, achievements and any skills gained). This scheme also works well with YELA as volunteering hours can be recorded.
We launched this scheme in Half Term on Sunday 15 February and had some great feedback.See new page The Young Equestrian Club for more details.
